Hello film community. I need to rig a series of china balls to hang from a flat vaulted ceiling, and I cannot use nails or screws. The lighting is for 360 coverage, so I cannot use any stands. How would you rig the lights?

 

Thank you,

Peter

3M command hooks or wall spreaders.

What is the span of the ceiling? The nature of the solutions depend on that....

JD, I'm way out of date. The wall spreader idea never existed. There were polecats. So if the ceiling span was too much, one might use a high strength alloy tube to span between polecats going floor to ceiling, or something...but the wall spreader idea is great. Hopefully, they have implemented their idea well.
